Description

This trail starts by branching off of the Franconia Notch State Park Recreational Trail. It soon crosses under Route 3 and a footbridge, then begins ascending in earnest to its junction with the Indian Head Trail. Along this portion of the trail, be sure to take your time as you slog up the trail's steep, relentless grades.

From the Indian Head Trail junction, follow the Mount Pemigewasset Trail to the summit. Take care on the ledges when ice is present. For more information, check out the AMC's White Mountain Guide.
